Good day Experts.
So I just started taking a Java class (no pun intended).

Instructor gave us an assignment to write an applet based on Hello World program (see attached code).  Need to output information like Name, college, age - each on their own line.

Question is, if g.drawString puts everything on one line, what's the command to go to the next line?
/* FILE: Applet1.java */
/* A Java applet. */
import java.awt.Graphics;
import java.applet.Applet;
public class Applet1 extends Applet {
public void paint( Graphics g )
{
g.drawString("Hello World!", 25, 25);
}
}
<!-- FILE: Applet1.html -->
<html>
<applet code="Applet1.class" width=275 height=125>
</applet>
</html>

g.drawString(String s, int x, int y) - has arguments x and y which pint to exact location
where the string starts - so you need to calcyulate new values x and y so that new string starte below the previous string.

value x is number of pixels counted horizontally form the left border of your
component where you are drawing
value y is counted vertically from the top borde

so ig you have

g.drawString("Name", 25, 50)
g.darwString("Address",25, 70)

you'll see Address start just below the plcae  where "Name" starts

so next string

g.drawSring("Phone", 25, 90);

will be one line lowere

In comparison to say
System.out.println(String) command
with darwString you have much more flexibility - you can even print
one on top of another or with minimal itervals, etc, etc

On the other hand you should take care of all formatting in your code
